Back in July 2021, Microsoft introduced Windows 365, a cloud-based service that allows the creation of Windows virtual machines for your end users.
It’s more like a virtualization or remote access software where you assign Cloud PC to an individual user. The Cloud PC assigned to individual users will serve as a dedicated Windows device.
We are talking about Windows 365 because Microsoft recently announced a new Windows 364 application on the Microsoft Store.
Windows 365 App Details
The new Windows 365 cloud PC app is now available in the Microsoft Store for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users. It’s available as a free download, but you must have a Windows 365 subscription to use its features.
